is a plant species of the genus Cucurbita sororia . Cucurbita [1 ] It ranges from northern [2 ] Mexico to Nicaragua, mostly along the Pacific coast. This species was originally considered closely related to but Cucurbita texana C. sororia was later shown to be an ancestor of , Cucurbita argyrosperma [2 ] with which it hybridizes well. [3 ] [4 ]
The species was
formally described by Liberty Hyde Bailey in 1943, in Gentes Herbarum. [2 ]
